The Executive Office (TEO) has announced a consultation on the provision of free period products in Northern Ireland.  The consultation states that period products are essential items for personal care and should be available to everyone who needs them, regardless of their economic status.  The Assembly passed the Period Products (Free Provision) Act (Northern Ireland) 2022 which places importance on respect for dignity and aims to remove financial barriers to accessing period products.

To shape what this scheme will look like, the TEO is now consulting with the public on what type of products should be available, and how and where they should be obtained.

The consultation closes on Monday 18 September 2023 and can be accessed at the following link:
